Sure, they get one can of Fancy Feast split three ways in the morning plus free-choice kibble. Surprisingly, only one of them is fat, but we're having trouble figuring out how to keep ONE out of three cats out of the kibble.

Hey you Jani.....My goats only eat out of cans as well.  Tons of grain placed in them to keep the rodents at bay.  The poor things never get to chew on can as well.

 

Jackie that's a beautiful cat!

S'okay. His name is Bodhi by the way. Not my fault, that's the name he came with. Like all my cats, he's a foundling. Anyway, that particular cat HATES dogs with a passion. I had both growing up and they got along famously. I don't mind dogs, but cats and I have a certain understanding. I much prefer their energy. Besides, Susan and I don't have time to properly raise a puppy.

 

Hugs!

That is such a good name, from Bodhisattva. (a person who is able to reach nirvana but delays doing so out of compassion in order to save suffering beings.)   I like cats too but cannot live with them any longer due to my lung issues.

Well that big storm that hitting everyone has hit New England and travel the past couple days have been terrible.  My commutes were long enough traveling at 60-65 mph.  Now I'm going a blistering 15 mph.  I am always grateful for snow plows but not being behind them.  LOL

So my coffee ran out well before I got to work both days.  

I hope everyone else is staying safe and warm.

Down here by the coast it was a mix of sleet and snow so only a couple inches of accumulation.  Going to fire up the loader soon and clear the driveway and mailbox area.  Drive carefully @ShawnaLeigh.

A balmy 9 above right now. To flipping cold for this girl. On days like this I just want to stay in the house not going anywhere. May go out and see if I can get the truck started. I think it is the key chip, which I removed and taped above the lock cylinder. Electrical tape gets hard when cold, and it may have moved. 

 

Tomorrow Me and the wife go to Scottsbluff, NE. To visit my middle son. Then head to visit my oldest in Lincoln on the second.

 

Everyone traveling be safe and keep warm.

I drove around a bit this afternoon, post coffee.

Lots of traffic. Can't say I enjoy iy, but the scenery was wonderful - bright sunny day in the Ozarks, temps in 40s and 50s.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year!

Yep! We're fortunate to be in Sweden for the new year but we're currently holed up in our hotel room streaming the Rose Parade live from warm Pasadena California. Love the pretty floats and flowers!!

Didn't get to see the Rose parade this morning. We left for Scottsbluff. Here now with my grandson staying with us. Went swimming, pool was empty beside the four of us.

 

But the Rose parade brings back good memories, My oldest son performed with the Wyoming all state High School marching band in 2004.

Good morning! Coffee is so good on this grey dreary (dreich) day!

I have to get some tools and supplies to do some minor craftwork. My studio windows are not very weather tight, so with the heat on it's all I can do to get the temps up to the mid 50s. I'm going to make some removable, light duty interior storm windows to help keep the weather (and the bugs) out.

Wishing everyone a pleasant start to the new decade!

Well I do have a bit of sunshine in my otherwise cloudy start to my new year.  I managed to hit one of my goals for loosing weight!

At my max I was 286 at 5’7”. 
Today I weigh 167.5.  
This was a personal goal as it was my weight when I was honorable discharged from the USAF back in 1997.  
My over all goal is to float someplace between 150-160 and then pray for hips butt and chest.  Lol

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Congratulations! My weight goal is still elusive. I'll make it there. Eventually.

In the meantime, if you happen to corner the hips, butt and chest fairy, I'd like to have a word with her. I didn't receive my portion. 😜

Good morning. Already on the road for work, got my coffee to hopefully help me wake up. Kind of a dreary day. Calling for the white stuff tonight or tomorrow. Don’t mind the snow just hate shoveling 😂

Hi, we had a good New Years Eve, but a sad New Year’s Day.  Our daughter and granddaughters had to leave to go home.  Even our dog has been mopping.

 

Had some Nescafé this morning.  We are out of ground coffee.  
 

I’m on my way to see if I can get out of this air cast this morning.  Then going to go to Group this evening.  Two hours each way but it’s worth it.  Far better group than any that are closer.  I just can’t go with any regularity.

 

i wish everyone a great year.  May your desires come true.

      Copy places or Office Depot, etc. Take the file on a stick or disc and they'll print it. I'm very happy for you. And a bit jealous over my having to continue waiting. But I'm happy for you still. You got this gal! TA
    • BrandiBri
      Yes especially at first it's a real rollercoaster ride! Between the highs and lows, going from being ecstatic one minute and crying uncontrollably the next I found that every emotion that I felt just added to the affirmation that I was on my way to being the woman I was meant to be. It's a wild and fun ride so hang on tight!
    • TammyAnne
      Congratulations KathyLauren! Congratulations Willow! I could do with a narrower waist, I'm built like a barrel! Someday things will get back to normal and I can commence HRT. Soon, please, soon!?! TA
    • Emma?
      @Susan R Thank you so much for your advice! I have always been irregular, but when I was 14 I did have anorexia which caused me to not have a period for an entire year. I am now at a healthy weight, and my doctor is not worried about the irregularity especially since my mom and older sister were both irregular for a long time. I did download clue and will be monitoring whether they seem related. It seems like a great app!

      I would like to comment on this subject. I think for me it’s more how I feel. I own both female and make clothes. I use to have mini skirts and dresses but I had to sell them because money got tight. I had a wig but I got rid of it because it was to hot on my head and made me itch plus it wasn’t convincing me I was a woman. I sold my dresses to. I’m down to panties and nightgowns now. I can choose my undergarment on how I feel that day. My men’s clothes are unisex so it doesn’t matter. I’ve bought men’s bright clothes to bring out my feminine side. I can also choose how I want to present inner self. Sometimes I will shave my legs and other times I won’t. My personality though is more of a woman’s. I’m a writer, journal, soft spoken, very emotional, love romance, and love to dress cute regardless of its men’s or women’s I am always put together. I thought I was a trans man but I’ve begun to see in my journey that I just have female traits. So am I a cross dresser? I will never label myself because labels mean you belong to a group. I am me and if I am truly free that means I can be a woman or man. When someone or myself needs a little love that is when Tessa comes out and when I need to think logical about something I use my woman’s intuition. If I need to be strong and brave my manly side comes out that is not to say woman aren’t strong and brave but in my case that’s when my male side shows up. I do think I primarily live in my woman brain though. If this has made sense to you or helped you in anyway please comment.    love to all    Tessa 👩‍🦰

      I tried to talk to my mom a little but she just makes me feel like the way I feel isn't correct like I'm wrong in some way for feeling this. I might try and talk to my aunt though.

      She finally got back with me I got my spironolactone. The only bad news is I'm pre diabetic. Which worries me, because she knows I'm diabetic according to me telling her, my health records and the metformin I take. Oh well no more fruits I guess. Also I was low in Vitamin D. I used to drink close to a gallon of milk i day, but I gave up everything but water when i quit drinking pop. All I know is I'm happy again. Which is extremely rare. So I need to savor the moment, before it leaves. Big hugs and kisses to everyone who comes to my aid when I think the sky is falling.

      Hormone blockers/testosterone is really the only way, or you could just be in constant stress like me. You have to be patient, these things take time. It is possible that she wasn't trying to lie to you, many parents suggest the same thing while being unaware of the hormones in birth control. I usually just try to wish the testosterone to appear, maybe if I just flex enough it will be beckoned into my systems.

      Wow, great news...very happy for you @KathyLauren!

      Hi Emma, glad your here taking advantage of the wonderful forums here. I’ve been helped so much and I’m sure you will be too. It does sound like there’s some kind of gender related issue happening but I’m surprised it’s NOT hormone related.   High stress, anorexia, obesity and other weight issues can also cause similar irregularities. Has anyone diagnosed the exact reason for your irregularities?  There may be a clinical link between your “off and on” gender dysphoria and these mensuration irregularities.  If it was me, I would keep a journal or use an app like ‘Clue’ to keep close track of these two traits to see if there is any correlation between the two.  I’m no doctor but I always wanted to play one on TV.   Dr. Susan R🌷

      Damien,   I agree completely with @TammyAnne.  I had no clue when I was young.   I would look at girls, and be jealous of them.  I wish I was a girl, but certainly never said anything to anyone, I was a boy and that was that.  I fought with that for a long time.  Most of my adult life I thought I was an abomination for feeling and wanting to be more feminine.  Then I would get overly embarrassed and put it out of my mind, only to have it return again.  I finally went to a therapist about being depressed and as we talked about things it came out about my feelings of wishing I was a girl.  To me wishing was not the same as “knowing I was a girl”.  Anyway, my therapist finally told me that I was transgender and always had been.  I argued with him, how did he know?  Well he recounted all the things I had opened up about.  I had to admit, it made sense.     There really isn’t any one way to be transgender.  Not everyone knows early.  Not everyone understands their feelings until someone else points it out.  All to often, parents or spouses deny that you could be trans, it’s just a phase or but all the cis based things you’ve done.  They end up more embarrassed about it for themselves then they do wanting what is best for you.  Try to find a professional to talk to about how you feel.  They should truly know the differences.  Can’t pay?  Try planned parenthood.  They help transgenders. If nothing else they can get you to someone who can.     Willow

      Hi everyone one.     our Governor has not told everyone to stay at home, YET!  But last weekend the weather was nice and people ignored the distance orders on the beach an on the water. So now the beaches are closed to everyone, all boat ramps are closed, all short-term rentals are banned!  For a place that lives on tourists it’s pretty tough on the businesses.   So, this morning I was looking in the mirror and I saw my wife looking at me.  I asked her “What?”  She replied nothing but I knew there was something.  I asked her again later.  She fessed up, I was looking more feminine.  She thinks my breasts are changing although I don’t see it.  But I have to admit I could see my general shape is changing. Narrower waist softer features less or lighter body hair.   guess my HRT is working.  That makes it a good day.   Willow
